What nutrients would it deprive you of? Why is it so ridculous? You laugh as this is a joke, but if you were truly sick, youd be looking for all options. Food groups, as you know them, are a joke. Leave it at that.You need to know nutrition, and how your body is using the things you put into it. You don't need red meat, or milk, or anything from either of these. Where are all these "nutrients" coming from on a cooked food, processed diet, and how are you getting them, in the real quantities you need? You need 30,000IU of Beta-carotene a day. Where are you getting this from?
If you are going to claim that its missing nutrients, and not healthy, you need to be able to back that up. Your body will be introduced to vitamins/minerals thats its never even seen before.
The fact is, there are only a few things that can make the human body ill. Bacteria, viruses, an acidic environment in the body (low ph), a lack of certain vitamins, a mixture of those, etc. Genetics doesn't play a part, and you aren't sick by "chance". You don't have fibro by mistake, or by a "luck of the draw". Again, im sorry. But it doesnt work like that.
Your daily diet, and a diet, are two different things, as you know them. You guys go on "diets", I don't. I eat perfectly, and have had multiple tests done to prove my vitamin/mineral/essential acids are ok, because I was worried about the same thing, in the beginning. Not only are they ok, they are off the charts.
Why do (good) oncologists take cancer patients off of red meat, pork, and dairy, when they have cancer? Because it spikes certain proteins, and feeds the disease. Imagine what its doing to you, when you are "healthy". Its creating an acidic environment, that allows disease to thrive, and gives it every opportunity to do so.
Im still more than open for emails for anyone else who wants to know how to be healthy, btw.
I don't hate the medical community. They have a place. Things like stopping bleeding and closing up wounds, things of that nature. Your body can take care of the rest, if allowed.
As far as a "vegetarian diet" goes, if you are heating your foods above 105 degrees, (every cooking form does this) you are removing ALL enzymes, and a good chuck of the vitamins and minerals. The parts you havent destroyed by heating, are unstable, and your body has a very hard time trying to digest, and use them properly. Your body reacts to these cooked meals, as if it were under attack by a virus or bacteria, and your immune system releases white blood cells in massive amounts, trying to combat what it thinks is an outside invader. Thats digestive leukocytosis, and you should be very concerned with it. It puts major strain on your entire system, and happens everytime you eat a cooked meal, no matter if its VEGGIES OR NOT.
Guess what? Raw foods, in their natural state, do not cause this. Your body loves them, and knows exactly what to do with them, effortlessly. The strain on your immune system is lifted, and you're allowing it to worry about other things, including getting rid of builtup toxins and viruses, and stabilizing your bodies ph.
WHY DONT DOCTORS TELL YOU THAT? I could go on forever here, but again, im looking for people who want to help themselves. These individuals have already made up thier mind.
